(edited because I thought today was 6/23....)

I guess it would all depend on what kind of metal it WAS. Some will make you very sick very quickly - like a poison, so that if you are not sick by tonight, you probably won't get sick. Another kind would be a cumulative affect, you'd have to eat the metal shavings daily for a long period of time. I would still put in a phone call to your doctor, I'm sure he can get back to you and tell you what you can do OR if there's any problems.
